GLADEWATER (KYTX) - On Friday May 3, 2013, The Gladewater Police Department received a call of a suspicious vehicle parked behind Truman Smith Children's Care Center on West Highway 80. Upon arrival officers located 1996 Dodge Truck and 4 other individuals, 2 men and 2 women.

While identifying them, one of the men gave a false name. When that name did not check out and the officer determined what his true identity was, he took off running north into a heavily wooded area. He was identified as Jeremy Clint Hadaway, 31. The other people were identified as Wesley Denton, 40, April Knight, 34, and Precious Ford, 20.

It was determined that the Jeremy Hadaway had a Parole Violation Warrant for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. A tracking dog was called from Gregg County Sheriff's Department and in a short while the suspect was located hiding under a brush pile. Hadaway refused to surrender and come out of the brush pile, so the K-9 entered and extracted him from it.

Meanwhile, after additional officers arrived, and during the course of this foot chase and ultimate arrest of Hadaway, a "sawed off" semi-automatic shotgun was located in the vehicle. The barrel and stock had been shortened making it a Prohibited Weapon. Drugs were located in the possession of Wesley Denton.

Wesley Denton was arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Interfering with the Duties of a Public Servant.

Jeremy Hadaway was charged with Failure to Identify/Give False Information, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, and Evading Arrest or Detention.

The women were released and as the investigation continues there is a possibility that more charges could be filed depending on the outcome of the full investigation.

The initial call came in from a Care Center employee and officers arrived in less than a minute to the back parking lot. It is still unknown as to why the suspects were there.

The Gladewater Police Department takes seriously any danger that might exist to our most vulnerable citizens and employees at the Care Center, and are relieved that no one at the Center was hurt or endangered, and our officers responded quickly and professionally in taking these suspects into custody.
